Vehicle hire firm expands into Shrewsbury

A growing Shropshire vehicle hire company is celebrating after opening its latest depot.

Jolly Good Vehicle Rentals opened its doors on Halesfield Industrial Estate, Telford, earlier this month (April) and business has got off to a flying start with bookings flooding in.

The new depot is owned by Jason King, who has successfully operated the Shrewsbury Jolly Good franchise in Bayston Hill for the last five years.

He said: “The Shrewsbury depot has been growing year on year and business has gone from strength to strength.

“We have built up an impressive portfolio of clients across the County and

were finding that a lot of our customers were travelling from Telford to our depot in Shrewsbury to hire vehicles.

“Knowing there was demand in the Telford area it seemed like a logical step to expand and open up a second depot so that customers can pick up hire vehicles much closer to home.

“It’s the first major step to growing the business across Shropshire and we are very excited.

“We’ve had a great start with lots of bookings from new and existing customers and I’m very pleased to welcome our new Telford manager Michael Jenkins.

“Michael has years of experience working in the rental industry and will be very well placed to assist customers with all their vehicle hire needs and requirements.”

Mr Jenkins said: “Vehicle Rental is what I know best having worked in the industry since leaving university so I’m very excited to be a major part of Jolly Good’s expansion into the Telford area.

“We’ve already had lots of bookings and we are expecting business to really take off over the summer months as people move home or plan holidays.”

The firm, which has its company head office in Wrexham, provides lead brand cars, vans, campervans and other vehicles for hire and is open seven days a week from 7am.
